COVID-19 Testing Incentives

The Ohio State University continues to refine, improve and expand testing efforts as they are a critical component of a safe and healthy campus community. Testing programs are carried out across campus to help the university monitor and address real-time trends and prevalence and make timely decisions on intervention and response.

Students who schedule and complete their weekly, required COVID-19 test will be eligible for a variety of incentives. Incentives include:

  • Gift cards to GrubHub, Amazon, Starbucks, Dunkin' Donuts and more
  • Tech products like AirPods, Apple Watches, MacBooks, Wireless Speakers and more
  • Special tours and campus opportunities like lunches and meetings with senior leaders
  • Preferred and priority opportunities like priority course scheduling and OUAB event tickets 

Incentives will change each week and those who test consistently each week will be entered to win larger prizes. Incentives are available for students on the Columbus and regional campuses.

Prizes will be randomly drawn on a weekly basis. Students should check their university email each week to see if they have been chosen.
